Having lived through an abusive relationship during the seventies, I was compelled to read Dorothy J. Newton's release of "Silent Cry". There is an unspoken kinship among survivors who suffer in silence. How the public view's your family life and how you are really living is very different. Trying to keep that secret because it's too embarrassing is tormenting. Leaving takes a lot of courage. Having a spouse that lives a double life is not the greatest deal breaker. These men are so charismatic that individuals feel that if there is a problem in your marriage it must certainly be you. Ms Newton gives God the glory for helping her with the pain and giving her the strength. I urge young women who are dating to read this book. I recommend it highly. Note the red flags that shout Nate & Dorothy's relationship is bound to fail while they are still dating.
Dorothy's number one priority had always been her service to God. Dating Nate, an unbeliever, she starts to compromise her values. This book is full of learning experiences. I was thrilled to review it for Book Look Bloggers.
